It is estimated that depressive disorders affect approximately 18.8 million American adults or about 9.5% of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year. Depression is definitely the No.1 psychological disorder in the western world. Even more concerning is its rate of increase. If it keeps increasing at the current pace it will be the 2nd most disabling condition in the world by 2020, behind heart disease. Any idea which can help us defeat depression is surely welcomed, and the one I am presenting today makes perfect sense.
Optimism software for Windows and Mac is designed to help you understand your depression and take control. With it you can keep a record of all things that impact your mental health – positive and negative, and create reports and charts with connections between the things impacting your health. These reports you can then take to appointments with your health professional, to help them provide you with a better, more tailored treatment. Also, you can formulate a plan within the software for returning to health and remaining well.
Optimism software is available as a 7-day trial, so you can test it before buying and see if it suites your needs.
